Ocean Deep (Set of 6 pieces) 2020
Through this painting, I talk about my personal stories and contemporary human situations affected by political decisions, especially on children and women. I treat them as something to overcome and to communicate with other people.
Voice of the Moon (Set of 14 pieces) 2019
The piece of work is based on the childhood stories and the atrocities of the emergency era. It is about new life, death, and suffering.
This piece of work is from an ongoing series Pulwama. This is the identity portrait of martyrs. In this project, I am going to make 40 identity portraits.
Influenced by Picasso’s ‘Guernica’, I started working on a new project called ‘Pulwama’. Pulwama is the most painful chapter in the history of India, which I witnessed. This is a series of anti-terror identity portraits. Which is my Tribute to all those brave martyrs.
